BSA Teen Theatre opens ‘13’ on July 20
Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Teen Theatre presents the musical 13: A New Musical, Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, July 22 at 2:30 p.m. in The Hirt Theatre, 205 Maple St.
“13” is sponsored by Mike, Donna, Sandy and Matt Allen.
A grown-up story about growing up. When his parents get divorced and he’s forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won’t talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.
With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, 1999), and book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, “13” is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages. It’s about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
